Nonetheless, when talking about Tamoxifen for bodybuilders, this article might be helpful for you.

First off – Tamoxifen (Nolvadex) is a Selective Estrogen Receptor Modulator (SERM). It is treating breast cancer because it stops the estrogen activity in breast tissues. That’s why it is helpful for male bodybuilders who run anabolic steroids that convert into estrogen. Usually, in higher doses / longer cycles – they are likely to develop gynecomastia (breast formation).

When Tamoxifen Citrate is added to the cycle – bodybuilders can continue their use of anabolic steroids. That’s while they are not going to get gynecomastia.

But Tamoxifen Citrate is mostly used during Post Cycle Therapy (PCT) plans among bodybuilders. It is because of its ability to boost testosterone levels very effectively. And also to help the body recover back natural hormonal balance.

Tamoxifen On-Cycle in Bodybuilding

As mentioned, there are 2 purposes why bodybuilders run Tamoxifen Citrate (Nolvadex). When talking about addressing gynecomastia issues during the anabolic steroid cycles – the compound is indeed extremely effective.

Nonetheless, Tamoxifen is still rarely used for such needs because of the availability of Aromatase Inhibitors (AIs). They are known to reduce the total estrogen levels in the body, Unlike SERMs like Nolvadex that only selectively blocks the estrogenic activity in certain body areas.

  • Therefore, Tamoxifen is effective for gynecomastia treatment or prevention. But is not effective for dealing with other estrogen-related side effects. Those side effects are very likely to occur during the use of aromatized steroids like Dianabol, Testosterone, Nandrolone, etc.

With this being said, in rare instances, Nolvadex (Tamoxifen) is used by bodybuilders to prevent or treat gynecomastia. But for such needs, AIs are a more preferred option.

Tamoxifen PCT in Bodybuilding


Nonetheless, there are no better options for bodybuilders to recover back their natural testosterone production and HPTA balance than SERMs such as Nolvadex (Tamoxifen Citrate) or Clomid (Clomiphene Citrate).

Tamoxifen among bodybuilders is a great compound helping the body to recover testosterone production that was suppressed during the use of steroids.

It would keep you away from low testosterone conditions that are very likely to occur after the use of steroids without a PCT plan.

Nolvadex – Tamoxifen for bodybuilders is great because it stimulates hypophysis by blocking estrogen reaching the pituitary. This results in the release of more gonadotropins and therefore, producing more LH and FSH. The Luteinizing Hormone (LH) produces more testosterone.
